What we fight for

Effective Healthcare Policy

Congress is currently debating significant changes to the healthcare system. PHA supports the following healthcare policy priorities aimed at protecting and strengthening patient protections.

  • Prohibit discrimination against individuals with costly health conditions, including pre-existing condition discrimination
  • Limit out-of-pocket costs for patients
  • Prohibit lifetime and annual caps on insurance benefits
  • Allow young adults to stay on family coverage until they are 26
  • Ensure formulary and network adequacy
  • Ensure medical care driven by clinician judgment and the patient-clinician relationship

In order to best serve our diverse constituents, PHA seeks to engage in conversation with policy makers from the full spectrum of political perspectives. Advocates are encouraged to personalize their messages but should refrain from presenting their political beliefs as statements on behalf of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association.
